Stockton, California has been in and out of bankruptcy but now sees the light on solving its large homeless problem: simply give taxpayer money away to all of them ala Technocracy’s “Universal Basic Income”. This is a localized version of wealth re-distribution and is all but guaranteed to throw the city back into bankruptcy.
Technocrats have found a new angle to spark divesting of carbon-based assets: “if people stop putting funds now in fossil fuels, they may at least limit their losses.” The academics used techniques commonly found in global warming science: “we have observed the data and made projections from there.” Not surprisingly, Christiana Figures is mentioned in this article.
Smart City technology has found a way to incorporate blanket sensors into road pavement to provide continuous ‘services’ and connections to your autonomous and traditional automobile. Commercial companies will deliver Internet-based content to passengers while government entities will track and monitor every movement and behavior.
Gov. Jerry Brown has more in common with a Technocrat than a left-wing Democrat: he is totally ‘green’, promoting Sustainable Development, global warming, alternative energy, smart cities and unlimited immigration.

Technocrats in China live for maximum efficiency and have figured out that the way to get rid of China’s discarded food is to feed it to cockroaches. Cockroach ‘ranches’ can host 4-5 billion of the insects at one time.
The Google culture absolutely detests republicans and conservative thought. Its own employees are shunned, redlined and even fired for the conservative beliefs.
Free Speech has been dealt a lethal blow in England, where an activist reporter was railroaded into prison after covering a trial while broadcasting to social media. His hour-long livestream to Facebook was watched over 250,000 time within hours of posting. The judge was enraged that Robinson encouraged people to share: “I regard it as a serious aggravating feature that he was encouraging others to share it and it had been shared widely. That is the nature of the contempt.”
Michael Bloomberg is the consummate Technocrat who is addicted to data. As former mayor of New York City, he is a top supporter of Smart City development, and has just pledged an additional $42 million to help cities understand their ‘data’.
